It is good news that Sea Breezes has reached the remarkable milestone of 1,000 issues. To make things a little clearer the 1,000th issue is arrived at by adding 239 issues of Series One (December 1919 to October 1939) to the 761 issues of Series Two (January 1946 to May 2009). We know for sure now that the magazine did continue during the war as a weekly (Saturday) column in the Journal of Commerce. The search continues for copies from those far off days.As we enter our second millenary we will continue to improve the magazine and we are pleased to announce that this special issue will contain a bonus of an extra eight pages, which will continue from this issue onwards. Besides the gift of the extra pages we have enclosed a car sticker, which we hope will adorn your vehicles with pride.
Our wholesalers Comag are working with us to provide more retail outlets, but as ever in some places readers often experience difficulties in obtaining their copies of Sea Breezes. Please let us know if that is the case and we can approach Comag. For those who take out subscriptions, please encourage your friends to do the same.
This month we welcome back to the fold Justin Merrigan who will be looking after the column Asia Pacific News. Our thanks also go to all our regular contributors, especially Robert Simper who has been writing his column for some 43 years, the rest of us are mere stiplings.
To the occasional contributors and photographers, our grateful appreciation. To all our readers, best wishes and our thanks
Captain Andrew C. Douglas (Editor)
